New Year Tension – The Perfect Antidote


First of all, I hope you all had a wonderful New Year! This new year, I’ve had a great flurry of bookings with me for Indian Head Massage.  In my work, it’s common to see seemingly random busier periods.  There’s a natural ebb and flow of clients, sometimes accompanied by a preference for certain therapies.  It’s fun to try and work out what’s behind it.

I’m pretty sure this recent influx for Indian Head Massage follows the craziness of the Christmas period.

Now I love Christmas Day; I love spending time with family and friends and celebrating.  The lead up, on the other hand, can be stressful!  Running around frantically trying to find the right presents, remembering the wrapping paper, the crackers, the Christmas decorations… It can go on and on!

The Benefits of Indian Head Massage

What’s fantastic about Indian Head Massage is that it not only addresses physical tension, it also has an impact on emotional and mental tension too, working holistically.  These benefits are the perfect antidote to the stresses and strains of Christmas.

The massage focusses on areas of the body that often hold the stress of our daily lives; the upper back, shoulders, arms, neck, head and face. Computer work tightens the shoulders, phone calls and texting puts out your neck, stress built up at work and home may often lead to clenching your jaw and tension headaches, and worry and frustration often shows up in your face.  These daily stresses can multiply over Christmas. I’m surprised there isn’t a condition called ‘Christmas Jaw’!

Indian Head Massage is a seated massage, and you remain fully clothed.  This makes it accessible to a wide range of clients.  Adaptable to the space you’re in, it can be carried out at a clinic, in your own home or at work, making it easy fit into your working day.
